P.I.X.A.L is the 16th model in her line working as [[Cyrus Borg|Cyrus Borg’s assistant. She was tasked with leading the tour for the students from Sensei Wu’s Acadamey when she met Zane and the other ninja. She took an interest in Zane and scanned his hardware, remarking that he is outdated and incompatible with their systems. The ninja seperate from the group to meet with Borg and P.I.X.A.L leads the tour. When the ninja accidentally alert the Overlord to Borg’s plan to rid him from their systems, the Overlord virus takes over everything connected to Borg’s system, including P.I.X.A.L. She turned against Nya, Wu and the children, leaving them to succumb to the machines in the factory. After the ninja escape New Ninjago City with the Techno Blades, P.I.X.A.L uses Zane’s specs to create an army of Nindroids.
P.I.X.A.L works closely with the Overlord, extracting all of the Golden Power she can from the attacked drones. She advises him that the priority should be acquiring the Techno Blades, but he is more fixated on kidnapping Lloyd. P.I.X.A.L is sent to Garmadon’s monastery to acquire the Techno Blades, of which Zane was guarding alone. After a short fight, Zane apprehends her and brings her to the monastery. Using his Techno Blade, he hacks P.I.X.A.L and cleanses her of the Overlord virus. Now with a desire to help good, she informs the team of the Overlord’s plan and warns them of the incoming Nindroid attack. The team escape the ambush, but Zane is left badly damaged. Stowed aboard a circus train, the ninja sneak into the city borders. Here, P.I.X.A.L repairs Zane but accidentally harms him trying to touch his power source. She feels bad but Zane uses this as a moment to connect with her, to no avail. Upon arriving at the Ninjago Power Station, with the mission to shut the power down, P.I.X.A.L decides to stay behind while the ninja complete the mission. However the ninja are soon surrounded by Nindroids and P.I.X.A.L realises she must help. She distracts General Cryptor long enough to attract Zane’s attention, who boldly goes out to face the entire army. The ninja succeed in shutting down the power, but the cost is that P.I.X.A.L is shut down too. Revealing to Zane that that was the reason she stayed behind initially. With her final moments of consciousness, she asks Zane if they are compatible, to which he answers yes.
P.I.X.A.L. was the second to take up the Samurai X identity after the original Samurai X, Nya, became a ninja and Elemental Master of Water. She stole the Samurai X suit while Nya was protecting an immobile Zane from Vermillion invaders. This angered Nya to the point where she became obsessed with finding out who stole it.
While the Vermillion warriors were attacking the Temple of Airjitzu, Lloyd Garmadon was put in danger when he fell off his Elemental Dragon. Kai failed to rescue him, but the Samurai X flew in, using the Samurai Mech and saved him at the last minute. The ninja were amazed, bar Nya who demanded to know the identity of the warrior. Lloyd, humbled by the samurai's actions, thanked Samurai X and they flew away, to Nya's frustration. While flying away, however, the Mech was hit by one of the Vermillion's projectiles and fell to the ground. After the attack ceased, Nya looked down at the place where the Mech landed, not convinced she'd seen the last of it.
The next night, Nya travels to the Samurai X Cave to find clues to the thief of her suit. She finds the Samurai among the mess of the cave. Nya questions them about their identity, to which the Samurai answers in Ronin's voice. Nya is confused as Ronin's leg was broken not long ago. The Samurai realises this discrepancy and changes its voice to that of Dareth. Nya engages in a fight with Samurai X, demanding it's real identity. During the fight, Samurai X changes it's voice to many different identities, to each of them Nya disproves. Eventually, Samurai X pleads to Nya to stop trying to find their identity, reminding her that she did the same thing when she was Samurai X. Nya concedes that they're right and gives up the fight. She relinquishes her hold on all of the Samurai X gear and gives it over to the mystery warrior. As a symbol of good faith, Nya reveals something the Vermillion didn't destroy; the Samurai VXL, though she asks the Samurai to change her colour, as red is her colour. As Nya leaves to meet with her brother, she bids farewell to Skylor, to which the Samurai responds "Girl's gotta have her secrets" in Skylor's voice. Nya leaves the cave, pleased that she figured out what she came to the cave to find. However, when she meets with Kai at Chen's Noodle House, Skylormis there sitting with him, meaning the Samurai's identity still remains a mystery.
When Lloyd, Jay, Zane and Cole get into trouble in to the Vermillion base while trying to rescue Cyrus Borg, the Samurai shows up in the VXL to rescue Borg, in a new blue colour. The Samurai tells Borg it's been looking for him for a while and gets ready to get him away from the danger, but Zane stops the Samurai because they need Borg to disable the Hands of Time's ultimate weapon: the Iron Doom. The Samurai quickly agrees to help and uses the VXL to get Borg to the mech quickly. The ninja keep the Vermillion warriors at bay and Zane reaches the Iron Doom control panel to protect Borg and the Samurai while Borg tries to remember the 1300 digit code that will disable the Mech. Borg struggles to remember the code, but Zane and the Samurai both realise at the same time that the code must be the code to program a Nindroid. Zane quickly punches the code in, but isn't able to finish it before Acronix uses the Pause Time Blade to freeze Zane, Borg and the Samurai. The other ninja save the three from falling but the Iron Doom, now powered by all four Time Blades, travels back in time with the Vermillion warriors. Now stuck waiting for Kai and Nya to stop the Hands of Time, the Samurai deflects questions from Jay about their identity. After Kai and Nya return from the past, the Samurai is present when Lloyd makes his speech to the others to not rest until Wu is fine.
This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Please do not modify it. (visit this item's product page) P.I.X.A.L.(Primary Interactive X-ternal Assistant Life-form) is Cyrus Borg’s android assistant. When she first meets the ninja, she is under the influence of the Digital Overlord and uses her skills to copy the plans for Zane so the Nindroids can be built. She is cold and mechanical and incapable of any feeling for anyone. P.I.X.A.L. is actually the 16th model in her line, the first 15 having malfunctioned due to a faulty thermo-coil and a malfunctioning AIE-ES (artificial intelligence enhancer-emotion suppressor) chip. Borg was able to fix the coil, but the chip problem has not been completely solved.
